    I have a wingspan (unstretched of 66") divided by 2.5 I get 26.4" my arrows are cut to 28.5 without a broadhead. Does this help anyone figure out of my DL is to long, wayyyyy to long or just right. Any help as always is gr8tly appreciated. my arrow without a broadhead is flush to the riser as you should be able to see in the pics. I love you all :wave:

    So, you don't know what the DL of your bow is? Are you trying to avoid shortening your DL, just try it, come on, you know you want to :D

    It seemed like my peep was a little low. I hate that durn peep. I plan to get my bow crackerized after the season. I just want to fix all the main issues first.

    What do you have to do to change your DL? Adjustment? Cam?....

    I will probably have to get a new draw length module, and then it has a draw stop on the cam for fine tuning but it says dont go more then a half increment but that like an 1/8". Thats kinda tacky!

    Bowman is correct. Your peep looks to be about 1" low and draw about 1/2" short. Your peeking down to look through your peep!!! draw back and put your nose right on the string w/ out trying to look through your peep. When you are anchored you should be able to look right through your peep with out having to move your head at all..

    i think you are an inch long at minimum.... from the look in the pics... maybe 1 1/2" because you still need to unlock your elbow some

    If I measured your wing span at 66". I would start you at no longer than 26" draw. A lot of people shoot too long a draw. I would rather see you shoot a draw length 1/2" short than too long. You will be more consistent in hunting situations. If you are only shooting from a target line you might be able to get by stretching your draw length a hair:cool:
